Description: 

Like Atlanta in Georgia, Chattanooga in Tennessee was one of the major rail centers in the Confederacy, and a prized target for the Union Army. There were a number of battles around and for it during 1862 and 1863. Union forces occupied the city in September, 1863, which is the background to the way Drusilla mentions the city in The Unvanquished (96).
